ALGORITHMS OF OPPRESSION How Search Engines Reinforce Racism

by | Read by Shayna Small

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Shayna Small masterfully handles Noble's criticism of a predominantly white tech industry that presents itself as neutral--but is actually producing problematic search results that demoralize and devalue people of color. When search results reveal questionable associations--for example, interchangeable results of apes and African-Americans or returning only images of white people when searching for beautiful people--the system has an implicit bias problem, says Noble. Small's cool, matter-of-fact delivery captures Noble's prose in a manner that conveys the complexity of the discussion. This blend hints at Noble's frustration with experts who continue to claim that technology is color-blind even when confronted with results that contradict that perception.
